Do you know the most common types of car accident injuries?

It is harrowing to be involved in a car accident, as this can lead to serious injury to many parts of your body.

As a driver, it's imperative that you understand the many types of car accident injuries. Not only can this help keep you safe, but it will go a long way in allowing you to receive the right medical treatment should it be necessary in the future.

Here are some of the most common types of car accident injuries:

-- Head and back injuries. In the event of a serious collision, your head can strike against many parts of the vehicle, including the window, dashboard or steering wheel. Along with this, back injuries are just as common. From a traumatic brain injury to spinal trauma, a head or back injury can change your life forever.

-- Neck injury. The most common type of neck injury is whiplash. This occurs when your vehicle is struck from behind, thus causing your neck to "snap" back and forth. A whiplash injury can result in a variety of symptoms, including headaches, nausea, pain and swelling.

-- Abrasions. This depends largely on the type and severity of the accident, but abrasions are quite common in most types of motor vehicle crashes.

-- Broken bones. Any bone in your body can break in the event of a car crash. Some of those that are at the highest risk include: legs, arms, hands, feet and ribs.

You will have a lot going through your mind after a car crash, but it's important to do the following:

-- Move your vehicle to a safe place

-- Call for an ambulance and/or police

-- Receive immediate medical attention

Once you do these things, you can then learn more about the cause of the accident and your legal rights. You may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you receive compensation, you can use the money to pay for medical bills, follow up treatment, and any other damages.

No one wants to be part of a motor vehicle accident, but this could happen to you. If it does, you should never hesitate to receive medical treatment and protect your legal rights.
